Washington DC Hysterectomy Errors Attorney

Hysterectomies are common among women in the United States and often serve as effective means to overcome conditions of uterine bleeding or cervical cancer. However, these procedures need to be performed correctly and up to acceptable medical standards. When surgeons and other medical professionals make errors during these procedures, it can result in serious injuries to patients.

In many situations, a doctor's decision to perform a hysterectomy, or a patient's decision to consent to the surgery, is a life-saving decision. But when the permanent decision to remove the uterus or ovaries is made as a result of medical malpractice, the doctor or medical providers involved may be held financially liable for their medical negligence such as:

  • Failure to explain medical condition adequately to the patient
  • Failure to advise of treatment alternatives to surgical intervention
  • Failure to obtain consent to the procedure when alternatives were available (in emergency situations)
  • Misdiagnosis of cervical cancer or ovarian cancer
  • Other medical negligence that contributed to an unnecessary hysterectomy

As seasoned medical malpractice attorneys, we pursue full financial recovery for your losses, including your medical bills related to the surgery and related medical care, as well as the emotional damage you have endured and continue to endure.
